It’s been a while since we’ve recorded a Copyright 2.0 Show and, to be frank, the rust shows a little bit.
We had some pretty serious technical issues that make this a less-than perfect recording, including a few dropouts that I did my best to edit out in the audio version, however, they are still present in the video version.
But, despite the technical issues, we pressed on to catch up and cover all of the copyright news we missed. That includes a major Appeals Court ruling on the Google Book Search case, a ruling that says you can not copyright the order of Yoga poses and a very bizarre and sudden ending to the Jay Z Big Pimpin’ lawsuit.
We also have an update on the Oracle/Rimini Street case, Pandora reaching a settlement over pre-1972 sound recordings and some big news out of Popcorn Time and YouTube. We even have a little bit about Aurous, the so-called Spotify for piracy.
All in all, this may be a bit trying episode, but it’s definitely one that you don’t want to miss.
